I’ve been working a lot with a most reluctant Ila on learning how to read. I wanted to try something a little different to make it fun for her. We worked on this together (she is most proud of the I), and I loved the result so much I decided to get some printed. They are printed on heavy card stock, 11″X17″ and signed. I will be selling them for $35. They are up for sale in my Etsy shop. If you are in Charlottetown, please contact me directly. (The amazing banner is by Kim Roach Design)
I have some spot illustrations scattered throughout the current Discover Charlottetown Activity Guide. You can find it all around town or you can request one from the Discover Charlottetown website.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Me, Too! book launch today at the Confederation Library! It was great to share this sweet funny book with so many sweet funny kids. I was also really happy to share the colouring book I made with the children. I’ve added it to my “freebies” section and a downloadable PDF.
What a treat it was to work on this illustration. It’s the “Take a Trip” spread in Chirp magazine. This month they go to Newfoundland and I got to draw it! When I was a little girl we would go on summer trips to visit my grandparents in Newfoundland. I have such happy magical memories of those times. Their house was on a hill overlooking the ocean. Their shore was not as busy as this though! The best part for me was sneaking in some personal touches. I added my sweet nanny putting up laundry and (a little girl) me and my dad sitting on a bench on the hill. It’s in the May 2015 issue of Chirp.
I’ll be having a book launch for Me, Too! (Saturday May 2nd, 11:00 a.m.) at the Children’s Library at the Confederation Centre here in Charlottetown. I’ll be reading the book and handing out colouring books I’ve made especially for the event. There might even be some cupcakes. I’m really excited and hope to see you there!
Me, too! is out today! Here in Charlottetown you can find it at the Bookmark downtown. It is an exciting day indeed!
